    My XX Metal 24K From CL & Restored XS - img5038s.jpg


    Gents,

    See my XS, instruction was to re-plate it with gold... Turned out good or bad? Shall I send it back to re-plate?

    Personally, I don't like it. To each their own tho.

    First off - I'm glad you have shorts on!!
    I love the XX 24k and am on the fence over the XS, if the bridge could be done in Plasma or something similar it could be sweet. The black just looks a bit too bold for me.

    LOL! I was so excited to post the pictures, didn't even notice that... :)

    I'm convince now, i'll be sending the bridge for re-plating, probably same color as the frame
